Quiet time schedule 2009

November 16th, 2009

One of the most important habits that you can develop for sustained spiritual growth is the habit of a daily Quiet Time with God. Quiet Time is more than just sitting in silence. It is a daily time that you set aside to be alone with God. The goal of Quiet Time is to get to know God more intimately through His Word and through prayer.
